Belize Guatemala Dispute going on for two hundred years and still no end. There must be an end to this dispute going on for two hundred years. Saying yes to the ICJ will solve a problem that’s going on for years and has been unresolved. Belize has been claimed in parts of Guatemala since 1940s. On 2013 they were planning another claim due to the unwillingness of the British on the early 1960s to allow citizens to govern themselves and Guatemala took advantage of and long standing claimed entirely of (British Honduras) which is now Belize. In 1961 the United Kingdom was willing to help the colony be independent by controlling the defence and foreign affairs, internal security, and on conditions of public service.
The colony of (British Honduras) was changed on June 1st 1973 to Belize I the expectation of independence.
